    The DRLs are twin filament for daylight driving and sidelight

    http://www.priracing.com/product.php/374/0/piaa-xtreme-white-t20-double-580-large-capless-27-8w--pair-/d280653317a750da06ccfda2e3fdd851

    In the same light unit is a H1 bulb for the high beam.

    The high and low beam bulbs have been replaced by some with PIAA or other whiter bulbs to get a brighter light.

    nice one i recon il have to get those to sort out the DLR's & sidelight, does this just switch dipending on no headlights to when you turn on the headlight?

    Any pics of these?

    Also a link to the dipped beam/headlights woud be great  ;D

    again any pics know?

    just to check i need H7 for dipped and H1 for main beam

    so these:

    and these:
    http://www.priracing.com/section.php/14/1/h7/986ae554f8bb43afe846651da8818994

    Oh and i have read somewhere that the DLR bulbs are a pain to fit, something about taking the wheel off or turning it one way to get to some cap in the arch, is it really as pain to do. Would getting it up a ramp and get the wheels off be easiest way

    The type of bulb for the application is correct. You might also consider the following

    deal done, they took £500 off the car so ive accepted. They will change the wheels from the petal to the 10 spokes and give it a full service & sort out my tax.

    Please tell me i have made the right decision with the A500 lol

    the only thing which i didnt like was the ride height thing but i recon i will get used to it after a while and the seat may not have been fully down anyways
